We saw this site on a previous holiday to the area and we just had to go back and stop here.
The location is fantastic right next to the sea and beach
The site is very clean and compact. All hard standing which is set out in two large circles so you never feel overlooked.
The site has a shop for little bits you need tesco express is a 5 min drive or 20 walk into saundersfoot.
The Wisemans bridge pub is at the entrance to the site overlooking the beach. The beer is good but not over impressed with the food very basic presentation.
The only draw back is lack of phone signal and tv reception is poor but if like us your out most of the time it's not a problem. Broadband is available for a charge but its very hit and miss for strength you could not watch catch up tv on laptop or tablet.
We would use this site again the location sells it
Oh this is a difficult review. This was a default site for our exploration of the South Pembrokeshire coast as our planned site, Mill House Caravan Park, did not have any vacancies. The location is superb, literally 100 metres from the sea (though you can not see it)and was an ideal location for us to explore the coast path. It is convenient for Amroth and it is a short walk into Saundersfoot and walking onward to Tenby is relatively easy. There is also a reasonable bus service between Tenby and Saundersfoot with some buses going onto Wisemans Bridge.
The gravel pitches were good and had a picnic table attached and the actual site was well arranged. That is where it ends. The toilets were unclean and the showers likewise. What is unacceptable in this day and age was that the showers were extra. When did a hotel charge extra for a shower? When I queried this, it is fair to say that the lady in question has never attended any course re customer relations. When I booked in, no mention was made of this additional charge. There does not appear to be any allowance made for disabled access. There is no motorhome service point and I could not find any drainage point other than the chemical disposal point which was exposed to the elements. The odd thing is that the toilet block is relatively new but has no finish and very much resembles a public convenience.
Additionally there is no site barrier which given its location to the main road I would have thought was essential
I was warned re the sanitary conditions and in conclusion if you are to use your own facilities then this site is a good location, but for £20 a night you are entitled to expect more.
Would I go back? No and if you are in a caravan or a tent with a car why choose a substandard site? If I was to return, I would make sure that I booked in advance at the Mill House Caravan Park in Pleasant Valley and it is only a 10 minute walk to the coast down the old railway which connected Saundersfoot to the old Ironworks in Stepaside.
When we arrived and went to the shop to tell them that we were here they checked the booking and gave us no welcome, maps or details of the site or facilities available or a guide to nearby beaches. A smile or an 'enjoy your holiday, ' would have been nice. We had paid over £200 get more of a thankyou and response when I buy a paper from the corner shop back home.
The pitch was ok but the end pitches have no grass and are near the road so not suitable for children.
The toilets (all three of them, two for ladies and one for men)are swished with toilet cleaner at 8am in the morning, watch out as the floor gets a bucket too but they are rarely cleaned. After 10. 30am beware as they are often smelly and dirty as you can get over 100 campers and caravanners plus those off the beach using them.
There are no sinks for a wash except for the tiny sinks in the toilets which occasionally have a little or no hot water. There are no lights in them during the night or early morning.
The washing up facilities for crockery etc, are really unhygenic as there are only two sinks of which one, if you are lucky has tepid water. I have seen vermin on them during the late evenings. Do not put your things on the draining board as they are filthy with little flies or old food bits. They really need to be enclosed and an extra sink for clothing and cloths as the are often used to wash beach stuff and flipflops so can become sandy too.
I found the spiders and moths were not cleaned out during my stay and the mould in the showers and gunk should be dealt with on a daily not monthly basis. I heard they were once cleaned before the Caravan Club stayed at Whitsund.
Noise from the pub can be heard but it is rarely excessive and you can hear the sea too which is really relaxing, unless their is a storm!
The beach is over the road and you are allowed to take dogs on it but I have seen many people pretend to pick up their dogs poop, especially early morning. Would you let your child swim there?
Although I would not recommend the site to campers, if you use your own caravan facilities you should be OK.
The location to nearby Saundersfoot, Amroth and Tenby, along with the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, is superb and there are swimming pools and at Narbeth and Tenby if you don't feel clean using the grotty site facilities.
We paid £30 for a pitch in the school holidays, this included electricity.
